Apart from taking medication, there are a few things that you can do to help reduce the chances of having a migraine.
1. Keep a migraine diary and avoid things that trigger your migraine. When you get a migraine, write down what you were doing, foods you were eating and what the environment was like (e.g. bright lights) before the headache started. This will assist you to identify anything that might trigger your migraines and help you to avoid them in the future.
2. Try to control your stress levels. If you need to, get some advice about relaxation techniques.
3. Exercise regularly.
4. Eat a healthy diet and avoid too much junk food, salt, alcohol and caffeine.
5. Do not miss meals.
6. Try to get enough sleep and go to bed and rise at the same time each day.
